In expected yet disappointing news, Scout.com’s David Woods is reporting that Stephen Zimmerman has made his college decision. Woods, who writes for Scout’s UCLA site “Bruin Report Online,” says Zimmerman will commit to UNLV, his hometown school.
If true, it’s hardly surprising. UNLV has been trending for Zimmerman for the past few weeks, and earlier this week, 247 Sports’ Jerry Meyer cited sources that said Zimmerman was expected to commit to UNLV very soon.
With Zimmerman out of the mix, expect Kentucky to continue to pursue Charlotte graduate transfer Mike Thorne, a 6’11” 270 lbs. center who could compliment Skal Labissiere very nicely in Kentucky’s front court. With Dakari, Willie, and Karl all gone, the Cats need a big body in post.
